Posted on Feb 21 2015 - 10:04pm by Melba Bernad

Looking for a scooter that’s stylish, futuristic and efficient? Check out Honda Philippines, Inc.’s Click 125i, a scooter that’s powerful yet friendly to the environment.

Made for the young generation, the scooter was recently unveiled to motoring journalists who got to test drive the scooter at the Honda Safety Driving Center.

“Our customers said they want a good-looking scooter, so we will give them a scooter with exceptional design,” said Yasushi Okamoto, president and general manager, Honda Philippines, during the press conference.

A feature motorists will definitely love is the Idling Stop System (ISS) which eliminates wasteful fuel consumption by automatically switching the engine off after 3 seconds in traffic lights and other brief stops; and when you have to move all you have to do is just to twist the throttle to start up and go in less than a second.  Conventional engines continuously consume fuel once the engine is started.

Another futuristic feature is the Enhance Smart Power (eSP) that combines high power and high fuel efficiency with a quiet start and smooth eco-friendly engine.

eSP technology is integrated with the Unique Honda ACG starter that is able to start the engine jolt free and with a more refined sound. It is this technology that powers the ISS feature.

The Honda ACG starter is exclusively developed for comfortable frequent operation of the idling Stop System. The engine is started via the same AC generator used to generate electricity and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus there are no reduction gears and gear meshing noises. Just smooth, quiet starts.

Safe and secure

The New Honda Click 125i eSP is also packed with safety and security features, like the standard automatic Side Stand Switch where the engine does not start up when in the down position, and Brake Lock easily operated to prevent the motor jump when started or remains in the idle state when stopped on a hill.

The Click 125i also comes with bigger tubeless tires for better traction.

Another feature is the Magnetic Key Shutter which effectively prevents theft and push-button seat opener.  The New Honda Click 125ieSP also has the largest luggage capacity in its class at 18 liters which is capable of storing a Full-face helmet.

The benefit of Honda Smart Technology is further optimized with the advent of technology Combi-Brake System (CBS) which balances braking the rear wheels and front optimally.
